Previewing the Success of the Eleanor Roosevelt High School Boys Volleyball Team under Coach Jeffrey Obi It's a new season for the boys' volleyball team at Eleanor Roosevelt High School and with it comes new opportunities and challenges. After graduating a team of starters and league champions from the previous season, the team is in a rebuilding phase and looking to make a mark in the upcoming CIF playoffs. We spoke to Coach Jeffrey Obi to get a preview of this year's team and his plans for leading them to success. One of the key players to watch this season is senior Tyler Williams, who was a starter last year and is expected to be a leader on the court. Joining him is fellow senior John Lopez, another returning starter who will be crucial to the team's success. Coach Obi looks to these two players to provide leadership and set an example for the rest of the team. But it's not just the seniors who have the potential to make a difference this season. Juniors Noah Torres and Max Lopez are two players with exceptional passing and defending skills that may make them the best in the entire league. Coach Obi believes that these two players have the ability to make a significant impact on the team's performance this season. In terms of what he looks for in his players, Coach Obi emphasizes the importance of leadership and not just being a boss. He wants players who can remain calm and competitive on the court and act as guiding forces for their teammates. In order to foster these qualities, the team has planned more bonding events, community service, and weekly meetings to discuss their approach to competition. When asked about his message to the team, Coach Obi stresses the importance of setting their own standards and striving for greatness. He believes that the players hold the power to determine the success of the team and encourages them to aim for greatness rather than settling for mediocrity. But it's not just about training and playing on the court. The team also faces off-court challenges such as balancing gym availability with other sports and finding ways to raise funds. However, Coach Obi has a plan in place and has already started gathering fundraising ideas to ensure that the team has the necessary resources to compete. Speaking of competition, the team has a tough schedule ahead, including non-league games against Vista Murrieta and Yorba Linda, as well as a fierce rivalry with Santiago in the league.
